What is Going on with the Russian Ruble?

Russia’s next financial option may be ‘nuclear’


Russian companies need to buy dollars now in order to pay off foreign debts in December, this month we have to pay over $30 billion to foreign creditors. In January we don’t have much to pay in dollars, so the rate may stabilize,” Prosviryakov said.

The collapse of the Russian Ruble, in my opinion is deliberate and it comes on the heels of the tumbling price of oil, as crude fell to below $60 per barrel.  http://www.businessinsider.com/oil-still-below-60-2014-12

I would posit that this has been a deliberate push-back by the US in retaliation to BRICS—Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa—who want another default currency other than the US petro-dollar.

This whole international scenario is being manipulated by the US and the Saudi’s.  Of course here in the USA we are all enjoying the low price at the pump.  But here’s the rub, with this sudden fall of the price of a barrel of oil, it begs the question, why didn’t this happen let’s say a few years ago, when the price at the pump was almost $6 bucks a gallon?

What I’m getting at is this.  The whole game is controlled and rigged.  The Saudi’s are in bed with us as we sell them arms and buy their oil. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-10-15/u-s-seeks-10-8-billion-weapons-sale-to-u-a-e-saudis.html

The BRICS nations pose a direct threat to the US petro-dollar and this is why the price of oil has dropped.  Russia is the second largest exporter of oil, in the world, which sells over 7.2 million barrels a day just behind Saudi Arabia.  Another point to consider is this, when Saddam was in control of Iraq, and started to trade oil in Euro’s, rather than the US dollar.  This is one reason I believe we invaded that country.  http://content.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,998512,00.html

Examine the quote above:  Russian companies need to buy dollars now in order to pay off foreign debts in December, this month we have to pay over $30 billion to foreign creditors. In January we don’t have much to pay in dollars, so the rate may stabilize,”

What Americans should be outraged at is the blatant manipulation of the gas prices in this country.  There is no gas shortage only greed and avarice on the part of Big Oil!

In closing todays post.  It will be interesting to see what Putin does to counterbalance this financial attack  by the US.  Another point to consider is this.  If the US looses its grip on the petro-dollar it could cause a major financial collapse in this country.  Meanwhile keep looking at the Bill Cosby stories that won’t go away instead of the fact that Congress just passed another 1.2 TRILLION dollar budget.  It’s beyond the pale at this point….

#1 The LanceI Need Your Help on Two Issues.

The Nephilim Lance!

This is an artifact that the owner, Bob Shelly, Chief Joseph Riverwind, and yours truly, have come to call the Nephilim Lance.

Here’s why.  Bob thought it was a sword and so did I when I first saw it, but Chief Joseph told us excitedly that it wasn’t a sword but a lance.  He then told us how the Native American oral tradition tell of these lances that would go through three braves!  We have had it tested and it is made of Bronze.  It has hammer marks and has two edges. What we’re looking for is a weapons expert.  

We think this artifact is very old.  It was found in a remote area of Michigan.

  1. Pingback: LA Marzulli’s Blog – What is Going on with the Russian Ruble? | End of Days Prophesy

  2. In my opinion, as I said a couple of blogs back, the larger picture here is that God is preserving the dollar system for now so that America can remain on top so that she can continue to spread forth the gospel message and Christ’s soon return. That is until the appointed time that the Tribulation will commence.

    I really think that the sudden beating the Russian Ruble is now taking may be the catalyst for the hook in the jaw the bible speaks of that will drag Russia into the Ezekiel 38 n 39 war of Gog/Magog… and scripture points out the fact that it will be God himself that drags Russia into it and will also lead to the nuclear exchange (seemingly) hinted at in these two chapters.

    But make no mistake, the bear is wounded terribly, and she may come out swinging. But this is what the globalists/Illuminati want… population reduction. Scripture also points out the fact that it is the Lord who will make men as scarce as gold in the coming 7 years of Judgment. It is, after all, the Lord himself that sends this fire upon Gog/Magog and those that dwell carelessly in the aisles according to the ezekiel passage. This also demonstrates that God is the one who is ultimately in control of the globalist/Illuminati and their head cheese Satan and his demonic minions that control them.

    Interestingly enough, there is a passage in old testament scripture that speaks of a “bear” that attacked some ancient Israelites while they were camped out in the wilderness. This would have been at the height of their rebellion against God. I’ve mentioned many times about how America is repeating the same patterns as ancient Israel. Will history repeat itself yet again and see the “bear” attack the coastlands, or the aisles, as Ezekiel puts it? America will surely retaliate and then it’s game on.

    It would seem to the awake that the bear’s sudden economic crisis will begin it’s wounded behavior and will soon “lash out” just as the natural, literal bear did back in the days of ancient Israel.

    • Joel Richardson Debunks Russian Invasion of Israel (short version)

      Joel Richardson mideast beast explained …. more detailed explanation.

      Prophecy And The Muslim Antichrist by Walid Shoebat


      The below link is a very, very powerful argument against Joel’s “Turkey is Magog” view. Not only the information found here in this link, but also as I stated above, the history of ancient Israel is turning out to be a very accurate and profound picture of what is going to happen in the future regarding the modern gentile tabernacle, the USA, and it’s being attacked by a “bear” just like ancient Israel was. If all the other ancient Israel patterns have played out in America, I would expect that this one will too. I think the evidence is still overwhelmingly in favor of Russia being the Magog nation of Ezekiel 38 and 39. I think Joel does a good job in attempting to debunk this view, but in the end, as you can see from the info of the above link, it ultimately falls short.

      This is probably one area … well…. a second area where Kirk and I disagree. But oh well, in the end, there will be hell to pay for the world and it won’t be pretty in either case right? 🙂 I think you and I both agree with that one. 🙂


    • Here is the account of the bears attacking and killing the Israelites. When Elisha returned from witnessing the translation of Elijah, the young people of the area began to mock. For their irreverence, Elisha cursed them and the bible says that the bears came out of the woods and killed 42 of them (2 Kings 2:24). Furthermore, the translation of Elijah is notably an old testament picture of the rapture of the church in the end times. It just so happens that the young people then were mocking the whole thing when Elisha informed them of Elijah translation into Heaven, and then a bear attacks and kills. We live in the period just before the rapture, and the young generation at large mocks the rapture and Christianity in general. Is it a coincidence that America’s big enemy is a nation with the symbol of a bear and we’re on the verge of war with that bear right at the time just before the rapture symbolized in the old testament bear attack account of the translation (rapture) of Elijah?

      I personally don’t think it is a coincidence.

      Most amazing pattern developing here indeed.

    • Corey…there have been sooo many great Bible teachers through the years that we can both look to for insights on this, as well as
      so many other prophecies. Many “modern men”…like Joel Skousen… also give many details and insights regarding “Russia”…
      like Perry Stone, Jack Van Impe, Hale Lindsey, Tim LaHaye, Chuck Missler, Bill Salus, Grant Jeffrey, … and sooo many more as you know.

      I simply put this idea out there for people to seriously consider. As you and I know, the “experts” have been wrong before…and we may
      need more knowledge and prophetic revelation…as we all see through a glass dimly.

      Sooo that is WHY we are to WATCH…BE ALERT…and BE READY. Time will surely tell for certain. There is much going on with Russia
      and also Turkey … BOTH seem to have “end time roles”… along with the other “muslim specific nations”…but I’d say that “I lean towards”
      the view of Turkey (muslim nation) being the Land of Magog.

      But we shall surely see……and we both feel it is very soon.

      Also, that is a great insight on the 2 Kings passage regarding the bear killing the mockers after Elijah was “raptured” by the whirlwind.

      I admit I never saw that passage as a possible “type or picture” of the rapture….yet it could be! Good thing to ponder my friend.

      If you have the time, watch Walid Shoebat’s video above …. he gives us a lot to think about by helping to remove our “western glasses”.

  3. I just finished listening to the post from yesterday of Tru-news with Rick Wiles and it was on this very subject, well worth listening to. Thank you for posting it!

  4. I was wondering how the “dollar” could be used in Russia since they declared it “illegal” in Russia a while back.

    In the meantime…Request for financial assistance is being sent out by PrisonPlanettv Paul Watson for Baby Olivia:

    Help Baby Olivia Survive Her First Christmas



      The bear is being cornered and surrounded by the West with not only economic sanctions, but also with military. It’s only a matter of time now. We sit back, watch and wait for Ezekiel 38 and 39. The other shoe is about to drop it would seem. But I continue to believe based on some very revealing articles that I’ve read that Russia along with Putin is a puppet doing as he is told by the banksters. Everyone seems to be looking at Russia like they are underdogs here, but they aren’t. It’s all a part of the show and Russia is participating in the smokescreen. But the end result will still be Ezekiel 38 and 39 of course.

  5. Russia: Eventual “hook in the jaw” setup IMHO.

    The following is to be read in an extremely dry and deadpan sarcastic manner:

    European Union court says Hamas should be removed from terror list

    Sure, why not.

    European Parliament votes to recognise Palestine statehood ‘in principle’

    Sure, let’s go over the edge completely and finish it.

    Kerry discusses Palestinian bid to end Israeli occupation

    Right. Let’s get on with it. I guess I know what kind of winter we’re going to have. Again.

  6. Here was some disagreement with today’s blog entry that I fielded:

    “With all due respect to Mr L.A. he is way off base with his analysis. The drop in oil prices is due to competition pure and simple. The Arabs want to keep “their” share of the market. They know that all this drilling here in the states will drop off once the price of oil meets a benchmark of +-$55 per barrel. That is the spot where profitability meets unprofitable for drilling here in the states.

    This is not unlike the oil collapse in the 80s. Oil per barrel prices dropped so low that many companies quit exploring and drilling. Therefore the Arabs are dropping their prices by increasing production to add to the current glut of oil that we are seeing today. The United states was on its way to oil independence and taking a huge slice of Arab market share away from them.

    This will also answer WHY this did not happen a few years ago. The manipulation of the oil price is purely in the hands of the Arabs. One only needs to look at the history of Arab production to know that they have a history of cutting their production to drive prices upward. Oil production boom did not grow here in the states till oil prices remained steady above $60+ dollars.

    Russia was riding the wave of high oil prices which was financing their economy and military growth, Now that prices have dropped they are suffering. the ruble is dropping like a stone and inflation is on its way north, because they have to buy dollars now to pay instead of receiving dollars through their oil sales. Here in Houston we are hearing rumbles of how the oil boom is coming to an ignominious end and to prepare for some austere times. These same dire warnings are being aimed at the north where “fracking” has hit an all time high for oil/gas production.

    One might ask how good news can turn to bad news? Cheap gas at the pump is a good thing for the consumer but is disastrous for countries like Russia that depend on high oil prices. We are going to see a decline in our economy also but it remains to be seen the long term effects. One thing for sure in the short term the stock market does not like the idea. And Putin/Russia is going to get desperate.

    i disagree that there is some sort of collusion between the US and the Saudis to go after the BRICS. I can see how the oil companies could want to reduce production to drive prices higher but I stand away form the conspiracy theory Mr. L.A. is trying to foist upon us.

    And finally the Bible is true. Lest God build the house we labor in vain.”

    Makes good points but I think the person that wrote this is probably a bit naive. I don’t really care for the way they closed out their remarks, either.

    • These were some good comments from another person:

      ” I do not think the US has much to do with the current issue, this is purely an OPEC action designed to weed out the competition. I do not think they wanted it to go this low though, they have lost control. The only way for this to turn around is for a massive drop in oil production so we need to watch and see when this drops from the US to the ME and Russia.”

      This person is right about this. This is largely an OPEC created and driven phenomenon right now and deliberately so.

      Another person responded:

      “That the US is now a player in oil production again (thanks to fracking) is also playing a role in lowering prices.”

      ^^ I’d have to look into this to see how much of a factor we really are since for years all I’ve heard about is how we need to build more refineries but the environmentalists wouldn’t let us do it and that sort of thing.

    • “http://www.scmp.com/business/commodities/article/1664557/gulf-opec-producers-prepared-patient-wait-oil-market-revival”

      That’s a loaded read. Very interesting in terms of economic ramifications.

      A key segment:

      “Saudi Arabia’s relinquishing its role as oil price anchor has caused a catastrophic decline in the demand for inventory which has resulted in oil prices collapsing. Both physical and financial ‘inventory’ holders have been selling,” international consulting firm PIRA energy said in a research this week. It added that the selling pressure would not end until prices drop to the level where US producers’ hedging becomes uneconomic.”

      Name this insect and he shall be flogged!
      Eric! Are you cheating on the blog ‘ere laddy? Where is this from?

  7. Is there a Biblical solution to a world on the brink of WW3? Why are there so many wars? How can we prevent war and conflict? Obama implied that if the US tried to apply the principles of Christ’s teaching in the Sermon on the Mount to matters of foreign policy it would not work. If one cares to notice, it appears that Obama’s Big Brother NWO solution to resolving international problems are making things worst and raising tensions. If the majority of people and our leaders agree to apply the following words of wisdom from our Creator, perhaps with His help we can slow down the path to endless conflict and destruction. It’s not too late to pray for a true
    reformation and revival.


    [1] From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
    [2] Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
    [3] Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.


    [38] Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
    [39] But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
    [40] And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.
    [41] And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
    [42] Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
    [43] Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
    [44] But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
    [45] That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
    [46] For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
    [47] And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
    [48] Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.


    [14] If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

  8. US State Dept: Obama already signed new ‘Russia sanctions bill’

    “Published on Dec 17, 2014
    US President Barack Obama has promised to deepen economic sanctions against Russia by the end of the week, but it turns out he already quietly signed the bill, according to the State Department.”


    PART 2

    PART 3

    “The marble they were standing on was … COUGH! COUGH! COUGH! … RED, WHITE AND BLUE… COUGH! COUGH! COUGH!

    Yet another stunning pattern that plays out in the end time gentile tabernacle.

  10. Bottomline: It’s not Russia nor Rome that we war with…

    The king of the north battles the king of the south back and forth over earthly Jerusalem. The beast from the sea vs the beast from the earth.

    The 666 eventually takes over, likely with the help of the 10-horns … who rule an hour … with one mind.

    All the rest is just foreshadowing. Though I’d grant that the lion, leopard, and bear kingdoms that amalgamate are the predecessor of the kingdom of the north that 666 rules over before defeating the kingdom of the south.

    See Daniel, later chapters, and Rev. 11-13, 17-18

    It’s likely the prince of persia (enemy angel) will still battle the prince of grecia (enemy angel), no matter what parts of their territories wax or wane … or get nuked. At least till Michael (Israel’s angel) and the host kick the rest of the enemy angels out of heaven — into the earth (our physical dimension).

    The spiritual (supernatural) battle overrides.
